Today the Palestinian voice you will hear is that of our old friend Mazin Qumsiyeh speaking at the Community Church of Boston. Mazin has a doctorate in Biology, and taught at both Duke and Yale Universities, but is back in Palestine at Bethlehem University where he has founded the Palestine Natural History Museum. Mazin came to Cambridge to speak at the annual Science for Palestine Conference at MIT. Most of us know Mazin as an activist, but he is a passionate scientist who sees the Intersectionality between science, climate change and social justice.
We are indebted to our friend and colleague David Goodman of ibisradio.org for his excellent recording.
Begun in 2004, This Week In Palestine (a weekly 8am feature of Truth and Justice Radio (TJR) is an award-winning 45-minute (or more) segment of news from Palestine and discussion of issues relevant to the Palestinians' struggle for freedom from Israel's brutal military occupation and colonization of their homeland. It speaks from the point of view of Palestinians and those who care about them. TJR is aired Sundays 6-10am ET on WZBC 90.3FM, Newton, MA, also streamed live and archived for two weeks at wzbc.org; TJR's modest website, truthandjusticeradio.org, has a link to This Week In Palestine archives back thru 1-6-2008; editions are also accessible at radio4all.net. TJR sometimes airs Palestine coverage IN ADDITION to that provided by This Week In Palestine. We hope you'll write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you rebroadcast our work, or have questions or comments. Please stay tuned.
